DE PERE — In a rematch of last year’s WIAA Division 2 state semifinal game, the Kaukauna Galloping Ghosts are at West De Pere Friday for an early 5 p.m. start.

The official streaming site to watch the game is HERE at the NFHS Network, although it is a subscription service. Other social media posts promoting the game are likely scams.

Game preview from the Wisconsin Sports Network:

Kaukauna dominated Ashwaubenon to open the season a week ago, as Finley Doriot threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns on 14-of-19 passing.

Nolan Hall caught seven of those passes for 215 yards and a touchdown.

The Galloping Ghosts won in a running clock, 42-14.

West De Pere was pushed hard by Hortonville before pullilng away for a 25-14 victory.

The Phantoms threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns, most of it by Duke Shovald with 285 yards and two scores, though sophomore Patrick Greisen stepped in to complete six-of-six passes late in the game.

West De Pere won an overtime thriller during the regular season last year when Shovald and Doriot combined for more than 700 passing yards.

Kaukauna’s season came to an end a year ago with a 26-7 loss to West De Pere in a Division 2 WIAA Level 4 playoff game at Ashwaubenon.
